Did you know that Traditional Chinese medicine(TCM) and Acupuncture can help you lose weight, prevent allergies/hay fever, boost your immune system, improve digestive health, or restore radiant and a youthful complexion?

Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture looks at the body as a whole. Each symptom is looked at in relationship to all other present symptoms. At the heart of TCM is the tenet that the root cause of illnesses, not their symptoms, must be treated. TCM views every aspect of a person’s body, mind, spirit, and emotions as part of one complete circle, rather than loosely connected pieces to be treated individually.

Spring has arrived, and it's time to get ready for the outdoor season. As spring and warmer weather approach, with the new growth of plants and grasses, many people may suffer from allergies and hay fever. Cleansing your body of toxins and residues of weight excesses and purifying your mind and emotions are equally important in spring. Acupuncture & TCM can address root cause of these imbalances and restore body to healthy state.

Acupuncture can power up any other weight control strategy by curing appetite, subdue carving, boosting metabolism, improving digestion, regulating obesity-related hormones and enhancing the way nutrients are used. Additionally calm the mind while we are dieting! Research found acupuncture treatment for weight loss can regulate ghrelin (hunger hormone), a hormone that controls meal initiation & decreasing leptin, the hormone that regulate fat storage and metabolism.

In addition, cosmetic acupuncture improves collagen production, increases skin elasticity and restores you to a more youthful complexion.
